In floor wall I notice that if I select mutiple floors the last pass (on upper floor) does not extend far enough and leaves a cusp. If set tool overhang to 100% it extends far enough but my first pass is cutting air. My cut region containment is set to walls.
Have you tried looking at the regions? That might tell you what is going on.
Imediately after generate in the operation dialog, go to Options, Analysis tools, and use the green arrows to go through the regions/levels.
I think the issue is that it is doing what you are asking - to cut the floor.
You never said "cut the floor and the fillets" ;-)
In planar mill we would just mess with the retract stuff.
As we're still on NX7.5, I'm not sure what to play with for floor/wall
Did you try wall milling?

I'd rather be e-steemed than e-diseaseled
I'm in NX8.5.
Floor/Wall has two "cut region containment options": floor and wall. I selected wall. As I mentioned before it works fine if I select only one floor. When I select multiple it stops short
Ok Mark, I guess this is more along the lines of an ER. 50% overhang leaves scallops on walls but is more effecient for cutting floors. 100% leaves no scallops but results in air cuts when cutting floors. Separate operations for cutting floors and walls does the trick. I was just thinking having the ability to extend only finish passes would be a nice feature.
